Was not a big fan of only the couple of Lazy Magnolia beers I had tried in the past. Had this on draft at Blue Canoe in Tupelo, MS. Very nice. Double IPA with good floral aroma and good mouth feel. Nice addition to their line up.

Lazy Magnolia Timber Beast has a very thick frothy, yellowish-white head, and a hazy, bright orange appearance, with a huge amount of streaming bubbles and a lot of thick, foamy lacing rings left behind. The aroma is of spicy, peppery, piney hops and sugar, and the flavor is of sweet, malty bread, sugar, citrus juice, and piney hops. Mouthfeel is medium to thick and slick, and Lazy Magnolia Timber Beast Imperial IPA finishes dry, bold, and bitter. Also, one just does not pick up on the high alcohol in the taste, but you will feel it in your body and head. Overall, this is another wonderful beer, and I suggest that you try it! RJt

Sample pour from a bottle at Beer Barons. Pours a pale amber color with a white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, grass. Medium on the palate with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bready, rye, some pine hops, with a light, malty finish. Nice.

12 oz bottle from Garmonbozia. Thanks dude! So sorry to see my last of these go... It pours a burnt orange color with a really beautiful orangy, off white head. The aroma is an enticing mix of dense, spicy rye maltiness and plenty of piney, orange hops. There’s some hints of caramel or brown sugar sweetness, but it’s in a totally supporting role with the rye and hops shining through nicely. The flavor is the same. Fruity and spicy malt up front followed by solid but not overpowering piney bitterness. The finish settles into a great balance of brown sugar, rye, pine and orange. The Zythos hops were an inspired choice in this beer. Loved it.

Hazy orange yellow with darker lacing foam head. Aroma is bitter hop, hop and hop. Taste is same, bitter bitter hops. Long lasting bitter aftertaste. (Houston 201303)

Pours hazy amber with generous bubbly head that quickly dissipates. Bold citrusy-hop aroma. Bright hoppy flavor with enough of a malt finish to keep it from being overbearing. Conceals its 9% very nicely.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Super floral almost soapy hoppiness dominates this Imperial Rye Pale Ale, leading to resinous hop bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A fluffy layer of foam tops the misty amber shine.
-This is relatively dry, and malts don’t have much flavor to offer either.
-Big bubbles and dryness make for high drinkability (for this gravity).
-The hop character is also quite citrusy.

Bottles.

mrs havercamp! .. . draft @ nobi .. . awesome lacing .. . caramel, medium rye, flowers from super mario, and sap .. . mild sweetness .. . solid fizz and abv is masked well .. . mild finish- kind of falls apart there, that’s my only minor complaint .. . an excellent beer, way to go lazy magnolia! .. . . the only way a no-legged leopard could hurt you is if it fell out of a tree onto your head.

From tap at Beau Rivage Casino. Pours hazy golden color with decent head. Aroma was grapefruit, a little pine on the back end. Taste was crisp with the rye and back end bitter. Nice malt balance and taste darker then it looks. Nice.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Naples FL. Aroma is lots of spicy hops with light caramel. Taste is sweet malts, caramel, and spicy rye. Resin and grapefruit notes. The bitter finish lingers just slightly and I am pleased by this. The malt backbone gives the spicy rye very good balance. Alcohol is really well hidden. I finish this brew very quickly. I was surprised how fast the glass got emptied. Nice brew.
